About the Faculty

Professor Jennie Shaw

Professor Jennie Shaw,
Executive Dean

Welcome to our diverse and innovative Faculty community. We have over 135 years of teaching experience in the humanities and social sciences as well as some of the best staff in the country.

The degrees we offer are both interesting and challenging, and will give you the tools and knowledge to have a real impact on the world. Our fundamental aim is to help you think, research, and communicate more clearly and rigorously than you ever have before, providing you with the intellectual skills and academic abilities to develop a stimulating and rewarding career.

I encourage you to take advantage of the extraordinary life and study experiences available at the University of Adelaide. You'll have the opportunity to learn from and interact with some of the best minds in the country. You can also choose to study overseas at one of our many exchange partners through the Adelaide Abroad program, or complete an internship at an organisation aligned with your interests to count towards your final year of study.

Employers tell us our graduates are in demand. Why not see for yourself the diverse employment opportunities and exciting careers available to our students.
